How is it possible to exceed the rep cap without reaching it?

I just took a look at my reputation audit, and it ended with:

** total rep 13338 :)

days represented 247
rep cap was reached on 20 days
rep cap was exceeded on 22 days

How is it that I exceeded the rep cap more often than I reached it? Or does the 'reached' count not include days where I exceeded the cap?

This post explains it. In short, "reached" only includes rep from upvotes, while "exceeded" includes rep from accepted answers
